Marina Del Rey, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2010
Traditional holiday celebrations don't always apply in California. Sleigh rides, warming up by a yule log and building snow men aren't conducive to the warm climate. But that doesn't keep the community of Marina del Rey from showing their holiday spirit. They prefer to show their enthusiasm with a pacific twist. For nearly 50 years, the Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade has become a highlight on the community calendar. Every year, hundreds flock to the Marina's main channel to see boat after boat float by with twinkling lights and creative decorations. The best place to stay to get a great view of these festivities is the Marina del Rey Marriott. To learn more about the hotel, visit the Marriott Marina del Rey Hotel website.
Just across from the Marina del Rey Marriott is the main viewing stand in a picturesque setting overlooking the water at Burton Chace Park. There on Saturday, December 11, attendees will have a panoramic view of the entire procession and enjoy an intimate perspective close to the parade announcers and musical performances. For those who prefer a more relaxed setting, reservations can be made for dinner at one of the waterfront restaurants in Fisherman’s Village for an opportunity enjoy a great meal while watching the boats sail by. Whether attendees choose to be a part of an enthusiastic crowd or observe in a more tranquil environment, there's no doubt about what makes this occasion so popular year after year. A magnificent fireworks display lights up the sky to start the evening and the boats begin to show their stuff. Every entrant decorates according to the theme of the year with elaborate lights, festive statues and rhythmic holiday tunes. Competition is tight every year as every vessel competes for an impressive array of awards and prizes. Past winners have included reindeer on a bow, a sail featuring a sparkling palm tree, tiki mermaids and a surfing Santa. Although it isn't much of a winter wonderland, Marina del Rey's holiday tradition combines the best of coastal living with the merriment of the season.
